Classic, retro, heritage … these words are always in the occasional bombing of the fans of the field of vision, although the literal sense of feeling are very similar, but they can also be derived in many minutes to other meanings. Most of the time, they are simply a marketing function, used to express a specific appearance or design, and actual history may have nothing to do is simply highlight its appearance on the old feeling. But then again, there are still some timepieces based on real history, by reference to the past shape and spirit, to describe today’s better themselves. And this is precisely the nature of Longines has just launched the replica Longines Military watches .
Longines 1918 launch of the watch style, based on the new Longines retro traditional series of Military watch with a clear line, the classic design elements, will bring us back to the era full of surprises. Especially in the dial side of the most prominent, 12 huge Arabic numerals, and the original style used in the font is very similar, but compared to before there is a small upgrade, because in its use of the Super-LumiNova luminous coating. Small seconds disk module is still intact be retained, but to narrow a lot. Of course, these are not the only design changes, but the next feature to say is that some people can not help but speechless.
This is a silent design must let six points on the calendar window alone bear. Xiao Bian really do not understand, what kind of reason is to let designers feel that a calendar window into the small seconds of the second half of the disk, the other half and then take part of time scale 6 This approach is a good idea, Said, anyway, Xiaobian point of view, this unexpected design is really flattered. The simplest solution is to completely ignore the date function, so that it can further restore the original retro essence. Even if, for some reason, this feature is necessary, it should at least be matched with the overall tone of the dial, and then put up some position, integrated in the small seconds, Complete, it is estimated that this will not look so awkward.
In fact, look at it for a while, then, this date seems not so sinful … another topic, this table changes in the table needle is very lovable. Original style is the use of Breguet pin, very suitable for that era, but if used in modern times, it is not very timely. The new stylus design looks both retro atmosphere, but also does not make people feel too old, too, and the dial contrast also makes clear when reading becomes more convenient and clear. 44mm size of the case, with fine polished bezel, very texture, polished lug use is very wise, completely replace the old style of small wire. As for the movement, which is equipped with internal Cal.L615.3 type self-winding movement, based on ETA 2895/2-type movement from grinding, can provide 42 hours of power reserve, though not worthy of great books, But still is a very reliable movement.
Overall, the replica Longines Military watch performance quite satisfactory, the overall appearance is also quite good, it combines the roots of brand history, but also covers the comfort of modern watches. Although the design of the calendar window some puzzled, but also more practical value. Of course, I hope in the future iteration of the brand launch models which can be appropriately adjusted.
